    Latvian government to reach agreement on balanced approach to minimum salary for teachers - PM

    RIGA, Nov 13 (LETA) - We will reach an agreement on a balanced approach to the minimum monthly salary for teachers, Latvian Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis told the press after the meeting of the ruling coalition parties on Monday.

    He said that the pay rise demanded by teachers was larger than the allocations for the purpose planned in the draft national budget.

    We have to be realistic as regards extra allocations, Kucinskis said, adding that the additional financing should be linked with the required reforms in the education sector.

    The allocations and teachers' salaries will be increased, but the move will be balanced with "the school network that the state can afford", the prime minister said.

    The agreement on this will be reached with Education and Science Minister Karlis Sadurskis (Unity) and Finance Minister Dana Reizniece-Ozola (Greens/Farmers).

    As reported, the Cabinet of Ministers Committee earlier on Monday decided to continue for another two weeks the discussion about the timetable for the pay rise to teachers under which the minimum monthly salary per standard workload is to be increased to EUR 900 by the end of 2022.
